Trivai Question: Which celebrity helped fund the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine?
The answer is: Dolly Parton
Answer: Country music star Dolly Parton donated $1 million to help fund Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine. Parton made the donation to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, which was involved in the research. Among the agencies and universities listed as funding sources for the Moderna vaccine was “the Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund,” which left some on social media joking about singing the refrain of her hit “Jolene” replaced with the word “vaccine.”
